DASH gets the gold medal for bone-healthy diets. A total of 24 diets were analyzed by a panel of 33 experts. “We focused on quality over quantity. Our reviewers believed that there are diets that are so crazy that they are not worth your time, such as the Dukan Diet, which we no longer rate,” announced Gretel Schueller, health editor for US News & World Report, which oversees the annual diet rankings.

“We are always looking for more health problems than we can handle. But often there is not enough scientific data examining diet X and condition X. However, bone and joint health is an area where there is a significant amount of scientific literature.“, stressed Gretel Schueller. Before adding: “We also recognize that our population is aging, so focusing on diets that can improve the quality of life for older adults is an important part.“.
